“Fearless Girl” Statue and PR Controversy

“Fearless Girl” Statue and PR Controversy

We recently wrote about how “The Fearless Girl” statue on Wall Street came to be. As a result of the decision by Mayor Bill de Blasio to keep the statue up through February 2018, the artist behind the “Charging Bull” statue has decided to sue a variety of entities to get “The Fearless Girl” removed claiming it changes the meaning of his art. This PR controversy seems to be somewhat contrived, designed to get publicity for the artist and possibly some extra income. NY1 has the story and explains the artist’s concerns. You be the judge.
